Crema is like a young lady: elegant and quiet, at a first look, but also extremely energetic and joyful. It’s a leading locomotive in the heart of the Pianura Padana, with ever-growing goals to improve itself.
City of “harmony” (here are built organs and bells, the Fonderia Allanconi is well-known) and genuine foods (such as Salva Cremasco, Tortelli Cremaschi, the Spongarda, the Bertolina cake,..), it shows a silent and sheltered sort of beauty, jealously looked after by its inhabitants, who express in words, stares and gestures pride, ambition and joie de vivre.
And, in fact, only in extremely recent times Crema chose to show itself to foreigners, showing off the enviable quality of life, the charming nobiliary palaces facing the narrow streets and the squares and the churches that tell stories of different ages with astonishing architectures and art.
Crema has rich vegetation - our town is in fact in the Parco Nazionale del Serio - and a great web of cycle paths, which covers good part of the district and links the outskirts to the city centre.
Some of the routes extend all the way to adjacent towns, such as the Ciclabile (bike path) del Canale Vacchelli - an artificial watercourse that cuts through Crema from west to east - which is a 36-km-long ecologic route that joins Parco Adda Sud and Parco Oglio Nord with the extra municipal Parco Moso and Parco Tormo.
